The team of 17 staff who care for several young people who have all had trauma in their childhood. The staff aim to give them a sense of belonging, create trusting and consistent relationships, and give them structure and routine so that they can fully support them to reach their potential.  

Children, Families and Communities Convener Roisin Smith: “It’s great to see Millview Cottage win this award.  

“This home really goes above and beyond to support our young people in the city and ensure that they grow up in a well-supported, warm and caring environment.  

“Whilst we try and keep young people with their families, it is not always possible and it’s vital that when they come into a residential home they have the best care, and this award demonstrates our commitment to ensuring that this is the case.  

“This award highlights the nurturing and happy environment created by the team to enable our young people to grow.  

“I want to thank the staff that work at Millview Cottage for their hard work, this award is a testament to them and the great work they do.”
